The media wields an enormous amount of influence in how communities perceive law enforcement. This hands-on, practical training helps Law Enforcement communicate more effectively with the media and the community.

The course provides participants with practical experience and strategies in how to effectively communicate on-camera in preparation of press conferences, media interviews and public speaking events.
